Over the course of 2017, I’ve paid visits to Six Flags Magic Mountain, Carowinds, and many other parks across the U.S. However, today we’re heading back to my home park, Six Flags Great America, to create a new, revitalized Top 10 coasters list for the park. Unlike my previous Great America Top 10, this brand new list includes the New For 2017 The Joker: 4D Free Fly Coaster, as well as changed or updated opinions on the various roller coasters located at Six Flags Great America.
On Monday, July 31st, my family and I visited Carowinds, a Cedar Fair theme park located on the border of North and South Carolina. We spent about 6 hours at the park, which was more than enough time to ride all of the coasters (minus the kiddie coasters). In fact, because the day seemed so much longer than usual and I took so many pictures, I figured this trip report should be split up into two parts. The link to part 2 will be at the bottom of this page, once it comes out. In the meantime, here’s part 1!
Just when we thought the first single-rail Raptor coaster was heading to a Cedar Fair park, Six Flags Fiesta Texas announced today that they would be the first to build the new prototype, which will open in 2018!
Essentially what I’ve created here is a list of my predictions for what new attractions we’ll see at different North American theme parks in 2018. Keep in mind, all of these predictions are a mere combination of guessing and hoping. Even though I think something is going to happen next year, doesn’t mean it actually will.
